For more details, a complete list of participants visit www.bestofthenorthfest.com.

To enhance the experience, throughout the day will be performances from a musical line-up of some of the best cover bands playing the HITS and HIDDEN GEMS from a few of your favorite artists - Dark Desert Eagles (Eagles Tribute), Bruce In The USA (Bruce Springsteen Tribute) and Dead Sessions (Grateful Dead Experience). The festival has also invited a smattering of our favorite local food trucks from the area for those mid-afternoon taste cravings!
